Heading in his own direction

7 August 2018

HAVING COMPLETED four world tours with One Direction, singer-songwriter Niall Horan signed a solo deal with Capital Records two years ago, when the band decided to take a break.

He has since released the album Flicker, featuring singles including This Town and Slow Hands, both of which reached the Top 10 in the UK charts.

The 24-year-old is currently in the mist of a world tour which played venues such as Dublin’s 3Arena (cap. 14,000), Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena (7,500) and Brighton Centre (4,500).

After shows in South America, Horan is heading for the United States and will perform at venues including The Greek Theatre (5,900) in Los Angeles and BB&T Pavilion (7,000) in New Jersey.

“Niall’s touring cycle, which started with underplays last year followed by a major global tour this year, has been a phenomenal success,” says Horan’s international agent Mike Greek of CAA in London.

“He has an infectious personable nature which really comes across when he plays live. This tour has firmly established him as major worldwide solo artiste in his own right.”

Horan is managed by Richard Griffiths, Harry Magee and Will Bloomfield at Modest! Management in London.
